Comedian Jay Leno has learned over his career that getting political or even simply too opinionated about controversial topics doesn’t make for good comedy. He’s tried it and failed. He even noted how he knew Rodney Dangerfield for 50 years and couldn’t tell you if he was a Republican or Democrat because politics never entered into his routines.
But Leno took a rare turn to discuss the Will Smith slap against Chris Rock. Unlike the virtue signalers who were interviewed to express their strong condemnation of the slap itself, Leno dove into what he believes is the root cause of the aggression.
“Can we come to the agreement, look open marriages don’t work, okay,” he said during an interview with WPTV earlier this month. “I’m sorry, you know, if you want to screw around just screw around. Let’s not pretend, ‘oh, open marriages…’ I’ve never seen one of those work out.”
Smith is known to have an open marriage with Jada Pinkett Smith. Their relationship does not seem to be healthy and hasn’t been for a long time. In fact, his wife had noted in the past that she was reluctant to marry the fellow actor in the first place.
To Leno, Smith’s slap wasn’t the biggest problem during the Oscar night outburst.
“Will is a good guy,” Leno said. “I’ve known him a long time. And it wasn’t the slap that bothered me, because that’s reaction. It was in the chair yelling the obscenities.”
After slapping Rock, Smith screamed from the crowd at him.
Here’s the interview:
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our new GiveSendGo. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Truth Based Media
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
